Can't ADD to a LR Classic catalog on a thumb drive when additional files are added, externally, into the originals folder

I have moved my LR Classic catalog and related originals onto a thumb drive. If, external to LR, I put more files into the originals folder, LR does NOT allow me to ADD the new images to the catalog. I have been informed that this is because LR will only allows the ADD function if the catalog and originals are on a hard drive but not on a thumb drive. This seems very shortsighted since, in some ways, a solid state thumb drive is more secure than a spinning hard drive. A file is a file! What's the difference for LR users between a thumb drive and a hard drive? I hope this can be fixed.
